American Century Investments® is a leading asset manager focused on delivering investment results and building long-term client relationships while supporting research that can improve human health and save lives.
Performance Focused for Nearly 60 Years
Our investment culture shares the common goal of delivering superior, long-term, risk-adjusted performance. We provide solutions to match our clients’ goals and expectations.
Pure Play Business Model
Investment management is our sole business focus. We are not conflicted or constrained by organizational pressures; we put our clients’ interests first.
Privately Controlled and Independent
Unburdened by quarterly earnings pressure, our ownership structure allows us to maintain a long-term view in the best interests of clients. We take an independent view, guided by our commitment to do the right thing for our clients. This focus on integrity has earned the trust of clients for nearly 60 years.
Jim Stowers Jr., the founder of American Century, and his wife Virginia established and endowed the Stowers Institute for Medical Research, a world-class biomedical research organization dedicated to uncovering the causes, treatments and prevention of genetically-based diseases, like cancer. The Stowers Institute for Medical Research owns a controlling interest in American Century, and through this unique ownership structure, our dividend payments ensure the ongoing support of important work that can improve human health and save lives. Since 2000, those payments have totaled $1.4 billion.
Together we can become a powerful force for good … it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen from an investment management firm.
